The following Dispute Resolution practice note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
A number of changes to appeals in civil appeals came into force on 3 October 2016. These include:
the introduction of a new CPR 52 (the main part of the Civil Procedure Rules on appeals)
amendments to CPR PD 52C (on appeals to the Court of Appeal) to make that Practice Direction more user friendly and reduce paperwork before the Court of Appeal, and
a new destination of appeals order along with an amended CPR PD 52A removing the exceptions by which appeals from certain final decisions in the County Court would lie to the Court of Appeal
For details of these wider changes to appeals in table format, see Practice Note: Changes to Part 52 in October 2016 and transitional provisions [Archived].
This Practice Note focuses on the changes to CPR 52 only and is intended to assist practitioners in navigating the post-3 October 2016 CPR 52 by showing where pre-3 October 2016 sub-rules can now be found and if they have been substantively amended.
Note: This Practice Note looks at general court procedure and does not deal with statutory rights of appeal.
For a copy of the pre-3 October 2016 version of CPR 52,see the following PDF:
